The AcademyThe Academy 2018, 21-22 July

University as it should be: two-day summer school for anyone interested in studying ideas.

The Institute of Ideas Academy has been running since 2011. Bringing together a wide range of people of all ages and educational backgrounds, The Academy is a modest attempt to demonstrate the value of scholarship in itself in today’s climate of instrumental approaches to knowledge, the use of universities as social-engineering battering rams and the incessant demands to show value for money.

 

Academy 2018

FREEDOM AND SOCIETY: FROM THE REPUBLIC TO THE NATION-STATE AND BEYOND
The Academy 2018 will examine the history and significance of popular sovereignty from ancient Athens to the present day. What different forms has society and public life taken from the early appearance of democracy? What have been the trends and challenges? What does contemporary populism and the reaction against it - against national sovereignty and borders - mean for the early 21st-century?
